Elizabeth Craft Designs February Challenge ~ In Stitches

Good morning friends~ It's time for a new Designers Challenge at Elizabeth Craft Designs.
This month's theme is "In Stitches" ~ feature any of the stitched dies on your card/project this month. Decorate your card with anything else you like.

I started with an A2 sized Z-fold card and added a Dotted Scallop Rectangle in kraft and a Stitched Rectangle in a rose pattern on the inside of the card.  It makes such a pretty backdrop peeking through from the front of the card.
I then cut two Stitched Hearts out of Pale Peach Soft Finish Cardstock and a set of Leaf & Berry Branches out of Olive Twist Soft Finish Cardstock. I layered the Stitched Hearts and branches onto the front of the card, using a foam square behind the smallest stitched heart to give it dimension.  I added a bit of pink liquid pearl onto the berry portion of the branches.  

The "Hugs" sentiment is cut using Love Sentiments, from white card stock with a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive stuck to the top.  I ran it through my die cutting machine, peeled off the release sheet and rubbed on some Antique Silver Silk Microfine Glitter to add a bit of elegance and sparkle to the card. 

To make this challenge even more fun,   Elizabeth Craft Designs is giving away several stitched die sets (Stitched Hearts, Fishtails, Squares, Rectangles, Ovals and Circles) to 3 people!

To enter, simply leave a comment on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Challenge blog post and tell us "What designer challenge would you like to see in the future?”

We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing. 

The winners will be announced on Friday, February 10 on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.

I hope you'll join in on this fun challenge over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog!

You always go the extra mile adding your special touches like glitter on the words and liquid pearls on the branches.......these really make the card. I love the peach card stock you used on the stitched hearts. Beautiful as always, Birgit.
